Winemaker's Notes

Our 1999 Central Coast Pinot Grigio exhibits a richness of mouthfeel not normally associated with the variety. Heady aromas of lime, quince and pineapple lead to flavors of citrus, pear and guava, with a slight mineral finish.

Wild Horse has been experimenting with Pinot Grigio for the past five vintages. Our 1999 bottling represents the first release to be available beyond our back door.
